    I took the new toy to the range today. shot it 4 times and threw an acceptable group.
    I was pumped, last nite I had to get my gear together late, since the wife and I went out for dinner. Checked my box and sure enough there was my all the stuff one could need for a fun day at the range!I get to the range and I get out the powder and make up a few loads waiting to set up my targets and I get out my capper and see that there are about 5 caps and look at the box of CCIs, Oh crap they're #10s not my #11s.:fart: Doesn't make any sense because I use Remington #10s on my pistol and CCI 11s on my rifles.:confused: Well, I know I've got 5 in my capper so I'll take a few shots anyway. The range is closed so I go set my targets at the 50yd line. Range is now hot so I load up and let fly with a squibb load. I shoot 4 times and can't see the danged target well enough to find my group. Forgot my spotting scope, gotta wait on the range master to call a cease fire. I go down and get my targets and I'm thinking that if the group isn't too bad I'll try those #10s, what the heck.
    I've got a group 7"s low and 3.25" right. :boohoo: with one flyer. But the good news is the group was a perfect isocoles triangle with 1&3/8" across the base and 7/8" on the sides. Acceptable for open sights and 50 year old eyes:rotfl: I packed it up and will get the correct #11s and try it again!:eek: Cya 1madjack:confused:

    Was trying out those 320g Power Stars on top of 80gs of Pyro P, no wad, and no lube on the sabot. You're the second who's reccommended the RWSs. I've always had good luck with CCIs on my Knight.
    What has been your experiences with the RWS as opposed to the CCIs? Admittedly, the caps in my crapper may have been#10s too. And that may be the reason for the less than stellar performance. When it ignited it sounded similar to a flinter. May not have been hot enough for the Pyro. That is why I went ahead and folded up the tent.
    Shooter? Remember that was at 50yds. Well, I don't think I've got enough data yet to say it will be but at least the group wasn't all over the paper! Low, right but consistant maybe a factor of poor ignition, but consistant nonetheless. I'll know more in a few weeks! Head over to HA and take a look at the pics I posted there.:dancin: Cya, 1madjack:confused:
